DO I NEED TO HAVE RECENT WORK EXPERIENCE TO QUALIFY?
Absolutely not. Boulo and local companies see value in both the women seeking to step down from a full-time position and the women who wish to return to the work force. Many women find that experiences gained during their time outside of the traditional workforce translate well to many position requirements. Be sure to look at the time you’ve spent volunteering or coordinating events with fresh eyes and translate those roles to leadership, project management and team work experiences.
